Master Beveler Kent Lauer to Teach at Delphi

Events and Contests

For more than 30 years, Kent Lauer has been working with glass. His passion lies with beveled glass in particular, and hes made a great impact on the craft with his cutting-edge (no pun intended) techniques.

Living in Southern California, Kent has had the opportunity to work on custom glass for Hollywood stars, movies and commercials. He has written articles for Glass Craftsman magazine and Glass Patterns Quarterly.

In addition, hes been teaching his techniques to students around the country for more than 25 years. Delphi is proud to have him teach at its Lansing Creativity Center next month. If you live in the Michigan area, or are planning to travel there this summer, we encourage you to look into taking Kents Faceted Dichroic Glass Pendants class.

In this class, students make beautiful, faceted dichroic glass pendants and learn awesome cold working techniques. The brand new hands-on class covers all aspects of creating breathtaking pendants, from cutting thick glass with a diamond ring saw, to laminating and beveling. A thin layer of dichroic glass is laminated between two layers of beautiful Starphire glass, then ground and polished into an incredible jewel. No glass cutting experience is required. Class size is limited to six students to ensure individual attention, and each student will have his/her own 12 lap wheel. Students will have the opportunity to make several pendants and also have time to practice on a piece of glass before faceting the dichroic pieces.

Moreover, Kent will be teaching a Faceted Dichroic Glass Sculpture class where students will have the opportunity to create a sparkling faceted dichroic glass sculpture. The class will cover all aspects of the craft, from cutting glass with a diamond ringsaw, to laminating and beveling. No glass cutting experience is required for this class either. This class is also limited to six students to ensure individual attention.
